my son will be 11 weeks tomorrow. and for the past two weeks he's only napped for 3-4 hours total each day, sometimes less! he'll sleep 11-14 hours total in one day. sometimes he's awake for 4 hours at a time! no matter what i try to do he just won't nap! the longest he's slept is 4 hours straight, and that was only once! most of the time he's up at night every 1 1/2-2 1/2 hours.


is this bad? i hear about how napping more helps babies sleep better at night but he refuses!


help!

I'm not sure. Bump! It seems pretty normal to me. Is he breast or bottle fed?

Pretty normal.  4 hours straight is a pretty good nap.  My 10 week old takes a short morning nap then a 3-4 hour nap in the afternoon and up most of the rest of the time.  She sleeps pretty well at night.

sounds like my son and he is 14 weeks, he takes short naps during the  day for no longer than 2 hrs at most.  more often than not his naps are only 45 min - 1 hr and he wakes up about every 2.5 - 3 hrs at night.

It's especially normal for breastfed babies since they need to be fed mre often.
